that thomas perez headed up predating the obama administration. republicans charge the decisions whether to pursue certain cases or not were politically motivated, that from senator jeff sessions, a republican from alabama, nominating mr. perez to the important post, the president placed his drive to promote his flawed immigration policies over the needs of millions unemployed americans. we need a secretary of labor who fights to create jobs for american workers, not one that undermines legal work requirements. this goes to the senate health committee, and tom harkin says perez was a voice for the most vulnerable and reenvying rate -- reinvigorated the enforcement of the most important civil rights laws. >> thank you so much. interesting story there. >> absolutely. washington trying to trim the fast, will your mortgage deduction end up on the chopping block? >> a drop in confidence, is two months a trend for a slowly recovering housing market? >> surprised to see that on home builders confidence. all right. metals headed to break, a bump in gold prices today with the news from europe, gr

bellicose language. this is really a disappointment on the part of the obama administration more broadly when they look at north korea. they were hoping that the new leader, kim jong-un, who took over after his father died, would be more willing to work with the united states. but that is not the case. in fact, they have looked at the situation in north korea, and say that it really appears as though they are moving in the opposite direction, more bellicose, more isolated, so they are watching the country very closely. president obama, of course, has mapped out an ambitious second term agenda which includes immigration reform. a new gun control legislation. but a lot of people say that the situation in north korea, and also iran, could wind up dominating a lot of his second term. alex? >> okay. kristen, thank you very much for that from the white house. >> thank you. >> about ten minutes or so from now we're going to talk with congresswoman loretta sanchez. she's here in studio. she's of course a member of the homeland security committee and we're going to ask her directly how serious is

for welfare be waived? the house says no. lawmakers passed a bill preventing the obama administration from waiving the work requirement. last summer the obama administration said it would grant waivers to some of the rules but not one state applied. is that an i.e.d. in your pocket? the t.s.a. wouldn't know. agents at newark airport completely outmatched by an undercover fed who stuck an i.e.d. in his pants and slipped past two security check points. even worse, the t.s.a. excuse now, a member of the t.s.a. blog team says it's just too darned hard for agents to find bombs. >>steve: that says it all. >>alisyn: they're busy frisking grandmothers. >>steve: every one of them. >>brian: why can't you straighten this out? it's right by your house. can you just go in there -- >>steve: every time we go through, we pretty much get strip searched. they figure my wife is clearly a terrorist. the top story, the fact that we have a new pope in addition to a pope emeritus. it was interesting, when the news came out, the president of the united states was in front of house republicans, and he said -- the

. and leaked details about the osama bin laden raid apparently not a problem for the obama administration, the critics say, but letting lawmakers talk to survivors of the benghazi terror attack? that's a problem according to republican senator lindsey graham, he's vowing to do whatever is necessary to get answers. >> until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple and their story is chilling. they're scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> alisyn: graham says the house should subpoena the administration if needed. the white house denies pressuring survivors to stay silent. he carried out a terrorist attack on a flight to hawaii. in three days, rasheed is released from president and authorities say he's being released because he cooperated on other terrorist. and hundreds of people stepping up to help some oregon girl scouts who fell victim to a hoax. they thought a local company ordered $25,000 worth of cookies and turned out to be fake and left them with too many boxes of cookies and not enough money for the camp. after hearing the story, peop
what he says tomorrow to the people because that is how the obama administration is framing this trip. not as a diplomatic coup, but really as a person-to-person mission. israelis just don't know him. you know-- >> john: especially netanyahu's brother, apparently, who said some very unkind things about the president's stand toward israel. >> well, i think there is suspicion. much of that is based on because there has not been that much of this kind of contact. in 2009 the president went to kay row and gave an amazing speech there and traveled the middle east, but many israelis felt neglected. now he's taking care of that. >> and we know the palestinians feel neglected as well. maysoon let me ask you. we all have high hopes where the president hopes to reignite talk of a two-state solution. but give the amount of settlements has a two-state solution just become a pipe dream. >> first of all i think it's interesting how they're framing the itinerary for the president tomorrow. he's going to speak with the palestinian leadership, and then he's going to give a speech to the israelis. as i
: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're
700,000 are waiting more than a year. and the obama administration, the number of disability claims waiting over a year has gone up by 2,000%. if you're in new york or los angeles or reno, you're waiting over 600 days for the care and benefits that you deserve. that's why i'm in washington this week and that's why many iraq and afghanistan veterans are in washington. >> say that again if you will, paul. we've heard this, the numbers are becoming more outrageous by the month. what's happening at the v.a. is an absolute disgrace. please talk about, again, how long are wounded warriors having to wait for treatment and care in america? >> well, one of them with me here in washington this week is zach mccowan, he's been waiting 900 days. the system is broken, thousands of veterans are stuck in it. and nobody's really paying attention. we need the president's attention on this now. he's ended the iraq war, but he can't end the v.a. paperwork backlog. right now 97% of v.a. disability claims are on paper. in the year 2013, 97% are still on paper. this is a story this week that really needs
a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a ver
's office politics, michael isikoff, he's been on the front lines reporting on the obama administration's controversial drone policy. i asked him about the uproar and the catalyst for the recent scrutiny. >> what we did was get ahold of the justice department white paper which laid out the legal reasoning that would justify the use of lethal force, drone strikes, although it doesn't mention drone strikes, against american citizens. and while the administration officials had given a couple speeches on the subject, the white paper filled out some of the blanks in those speeches and gave a fuller explanation of the legal reasoning, and in some ways when i think significantly went beyond what had been stated publicly. particularly, and this is relevant very much to the discussion of the iraq war, what it called -- what it described as a, quote, broader concept of imminence. the first test as to whether or not a president can use lethal force to kill an american citizen is does that citizen, is he engaged in activity that poses an imminent threat to american citizens? that's the first test.
the obama administration. the republican legislation has little pass of passing in the democratically controlled senate. last summer the administration said it would be willing to grant state labor of some of the welfare reform requirements. not one state applied for the waiver. >>> are you ready for a good time? >> she has a figure that makes the number 8 look like the number 1 and a smile that lights up the night. and it all belongs to kid dynamite! >> after all this time, the groundbreaking tv show is headed to the big screen. >>steve: thank goodness. >>alisyn: you've been waiting a long time. sony is making the film expected to keep good times in its 1970's setting. no word on who will be starting in it. >>brian: jimmy walker is here, one of our favorite all-time guests. he says the cast didn't get along at all. i don't know if i can watch a movie knowing in real life they don't get along in sitcom life. and they resent the word "dine-o-mite" >>steve: they didn't like he had one word catch phrase. a live look at the six-foot copper chimney where any moment smoke could rise from t
house for us. how much of a problem is north korea right now for the obama administration? >> reporter: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran
away from the all-time high that we reached yesterday at the close. the obama administration was required by law to submit a budget. february the 4th, got to do it. nine weeks later, the president still has not handed out even an outline of a budget. in fact, the president has only met a deadline once. so has a law been broken? the judge will join us at 10:35 on that one. then we've got facebook and privacy. according to a new study, your likes on facebook could reveal your tendency to use illegal drugs even your political party, even though you haven't explicitly said all of this. by the way, facebook owns that information. dr. keith ablow is not happy about it and he will be here at 10:26 this morning. facebook is down big this morning. netflix is teaming up with facebook. now you will be able to watch your netflix movies while logged on to facebook. that's how you get into netflix. nicole, the netflix stock first? nicole: take a look here at netflix right now is a winner. it's been a winner all morning. year to date up almost 100% in 2013 alone. gaining 3.3% at the moment.

. if you look the last four years and a policy the obama administration has put in place, it is higher taxes, and burdensome regulations, have made it more expensive for job creators to create jobs and have resulted in sluggish economic growth. we have had .8% growth for the past four years. you would hope the democrats will be looking at policies that will grow the economy. what you're hearing is it will be more of the same. we are talking about a $1 trillion tax increase, more expensive -- more spending and nothing to save social security and medicare reform and those programs in a way that will align them with the feature demographics of this country. it is more the same policies with regard to their budget. we think there is a better way and will look for opportunities to offer amendments that will put that out -- that will point that out. the democrat budget will make it more difficult for stock traders to get back to work. -- for job creators to creat e jobs to get people back to work. >> there was a story today that talked-about the number of democrats griping about the presiden
